emigrating to the united states. it was a great magnet for talent for canada. i came and went to graduate school in the united states. ended up owing $500 to my law school and i had like a -year-old chevrolet and had a wonderful experience in this country. it is open in many ways, that are so unique to this country and to this culture and it was pacific northwestly clear to me why anybody with energy and talent would want to move here, because of the opportunities that were created not just in terms of economic opportunities but just in general. -- perfectly clear to me why anybody with energy and would want want to move here. it was much less -- there is much less prejudice in this society. merit and talent was a much more important quotient but have i to say that despite all of this experience that would have and has made me very optimistic on so many levels, i have developed an increasing sense of pessimism about where we are going in the future. future. . re ng in the future. the main reason for that, frankly, is the propensity of the american system now to produce weekly -- leadershi
." it is thought "john brown's trial" was the most important trial in the history of the united states. that's my conclusion after studying dates as closely as i could. and that is the purport of my book. i tried to explain in my book why i believe that to be true and i'll try to give you a suggestion of why you believe that to be true in my remarks here tonight. john brown's trial was the first trial in the history of the united states to receive massive attention from national media. it was the first trial in which the defendant was executed for treason against a state as opposed to treason against the united states. it was the first trial in which an accused defendant appealed to a higher law, to justify violent crimes. it was a trial that involved more than just a determination of an individual's guilt or innocence according to laws laid down in statute books and in case reports. it was a trial that pitted two starkly different moral visions against each other. one of these divisions descended the institution of slavery as traditional, necessary, just, and worthy of protection from outside in
, the answer is i would probably start with something different from what we have in the united states. there is a wonderful book out there called "the healing of america," by a washington post reporter. what we have in the united states is an amalgam of the worst, that just about all of the system that you talked about, we have a little bit from this one, a little bit bad from this one, etc. so you end up with something that claims its the best health care in the world when the statistics say it is pretty pathetic, the quality of health care and united states. >> you are saying the medicine is pathetic, so what about care? >> the medicine is pathetic, the results are pathetic. and the costs are exorbitant. >> that is very depressing. >> what happens then is that it gets demagogued to death. that is what we're seeing right now. the old things that scare people into tea parties, and from the left, things that are unrealistic. you end up in the same state of political paralysis, and the united states gets into deeper trouble providing something that should be a fundamental right in this
, they said, take care of yourself to get reelected. >> the opposite of a democrat in the united states, the difference is a conservative, not a republican. you cannot be -- a republican if you are not against big spending. >> keep thinking that. >> here is what i would say. what i would say is, look at virginia. bob macdonald reached over, not by moderating his principles, but by saying that his principles were not only good for saying, no. he says he wants to grow the economy, but he just wants us to do it, not washington. there is a positive, republican agenda out there. we will see more of that in 2010. >> when i first opted to propose the question, this was slightly more off-base. i want to bring up the idea. i came down here from boston, where republican was a dirty word. not because of the belief system but the reputation. my question is how much opinion is placed in the word, republican or democrat. and how much is in the ideology. how much will this affect things over the last year? how much has that changed? >> it is an interesting attachment to the word republican, as there i

state dinner for the president. something they were she lighting as this relationship between the united states and india on a host of global issues, how critical this is, but the follow-up stories obviously after this was very little about the event itself and so much about this incident, and then, of course, the investigation and the big questions as to how this could happen and certainly this concern as well here at white house. i mean, this is a president -- all presidents obviously are targets. they are dangerous situations which have to be defused all the time, but in this particular case there are threats against this president. there's been a lot of concern about that, and so this just shows as one representative already talking about, here is someone who is a possible target by extremists and yet someone like this was able to slip into the white house, and so a lot of concerns here and certainly a distraction, something that they did not welcome at all. >> james, i assume that this really goes both ways. it's not just the obama administration. when i was covering president bush

that there were ethnic groups in the united states who were in favor -- fell in the central european country in asia. domestic policy and domestic politics and preferences have an impact. one thing that is striking in my mind is the change from a small group that cares passionately about the issue. boston is the -- bosnia is the classic case. there were almost 10 congressmen and some people in the world who were very interested in an aggressive policy for bosnia. as soon as we had an aggressive policy, you realized there were a lot of people with good or bad reasons opposed to it and there was the classic day when the republican-controlled house of representatives during the coast of the war boded against a greater effort -- against the -- during the kosovo war and voted against a greater effort. >> we have about two more minutes. >> i defer to pull up on the question about promises broken. i was asked to go back and read memos. i essentially agree where philip came out. there's a danger here for the current administration to swallow this revisionist history that vladimir putin has conjured

of the drug imports into the united states. according to a 2004 investigative article written by steve in portland's oregonian newspaper, hayslip got the idea based on his earlier work on the illicit u.s. trade in quaaludes, a legal sleeping pill widely available on the black market. the manufacture of quaaludes depend on the synthesis of another legal drug which was predominantly produced in germany, austria and china. what hayslip noticed was that an enormous proportion from these nations was being shipped to colombia. there the cally and medellin cartels were making it into an illegal form of quaalude which they sold in tandem with cocaine in the same market, one as an upper and one as a downer, in the same way that meth markets today are offer saturated with oxycontin, a painkiller that smooths out the impending tweak of a meth high. in 1982 hayslip visited the nations whose factories made the drug and asked that, and asked for their help in monitoring its sale. congress then banned the use of prescription quaaludes which were manufactured by only one american company. by 1984 acco

in the united states about what is happening? >> we care today, first of all, because everything that happens all over the world tends to affect us. we've seen it happen the last few years. we also care because we're at the perilous times where we are seeing us getting into recovery. a lot of people saying are looking for any excuse to pullback and say the recovery is not coming or there's a double dip or another shoe to drop, so had anytime something serious like this happens, we pay very close attention to it. it may not appear to be as serious this week because it's a holiday week, it's getting a lot of attention. all markets aren't open and all traders aren't around, it may be an exaggerated effect and it has the attention of investors. >> we're a little sketchy, that's what you're saying? >> that's right. >> richard quest, when we look at dubai and what a happening for dubai world, why does this matter for other countries and other wealth funds should we say? we're looking at the asia markets down 3% to 5%. europe didn't seem to care. >> europe cared on the first-day session, it rebounde
